Hey experts, I was setting up a private server for a game, I know I have all of the settings I need to be right, however no one could connect to my server except for myself, no firewalls no antivirus, nothing to stop someone from getting in. I started to fool around with the settings in the modem to see if I could get it to work, now my internet light is out my internal and external ip's have changed. I had to go through the connection wizard to set up a new way to connect, it works but it is a real pain because now I have to manually start it up where it was always connected before. Hope I gave enough detail, thanks!

That means that you were on a private server and either that person kicked you for too much lag (slow connection between your connection and his), or most often that is what happens automaticly when a server admin sets ping time (lag) limits to bump players who weren't getting a clean connection to the server, and the system says you were kicked by the server admin who set the limit.
Fixes: Try a different server with players located closer to yourself. Make sure there are not too many people using heavy downloads or streaming applications at your home or on the same network.
Calm down first ive been dealing with this problem myself here we go 1st try turn your firewall to medium to let you hook wireless networks together make sure your settings on ps3 network settings are correct go to the left bottom corner click the icon on comp and go to network then you will see network and sharing center turn on network discovery this will give you a private network try this site http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/playstation-3-media-server-setup/
Y would u want to connect to a Virtual Private Network?
If u dnt kno the account name and server i dnt think you need a vpn as these are usually used for private business's . But i think you might need to set up cellular data network instead.
If your on a 3g data network then u'll need tmobile to reset it for ya bcuz the cellular data network is only available ounce ur using edge. The 3g network is supposed to automatically configure the right settings for ya.
You will need to make sure that your SMTP settings are correct. If you're using a private email server or an ISP mail server, you will need the correct settings.
Also, in some cases the SMTP server will require user authentication.
I'm not 100% where to find this in Outlook Express, but in Outlook 2007 you go to Tools > Account Settings > Select your account > Click Change... and from there you should be able to see a few settings.
Look for a checkbox that says:
My outgoing (SMTP) server requires user authentication,
Click that checkbox if it's not already selected. Chose option #2:
Log on using:
Enter your username and password in the appropriate fields. Save your settings and then try.
Let me know if this helps at all.
Given the fact that you said you can receive messages but cannot send, I know 100% that it's an SMTP issue which is fixable.
Make sure that you are using 1:1 NAT and not dynamic NAT, but more likely its a configuration issue. Some game servers like private WoW servers or Armagetron work better when the configuration file is setup with the computers IP and not "localhost" which is technically 127.0.0.1 and not Nat'd.
Hey Charlie, If you re-installed your operating system you will need to get the wireless modem driver from your dell disk. For some reason they have not included the drivers in the windows software. If you can't find it then you can go on to the Dell site(obviously on another computer) and enter your service tag and get your drivers that way.
First of all, how is your network configured? Are you behind a router? What's it's IP adress, does it act as a DHCP server?
If so try to set up a new network connection and put everything to automatic.. When the routers acts as a DHCP server it will give the PlayStation 3 an IP adress. DNS however is something else. DNS is a system that allows you to browse by a website or hosts name. For example: it allows you to type www.google.com in your browser instead of it's IP.
DNS is essential for Internet. Your router should be your DNS server and your router itself also needs to know a DNS server, this would be the server from your ISP. All these settings are automatically configured via DHCP.
You can use the Virtual Server to forward an individual port to one of your computers. You cannot forward the same port to multiple computers. In order to configure the Virtual Server you need to know the IP address of the computer that needs the port opened and the service port number. The links below will help you find the IP address of your machine. If you don?t know which port needs to be opened, try checking the software manufacture?s support website for information on use behind firewall.
Configuring the Virtual Server:
Step 1 Access the device configuration by entering 192.168.0.1 in your web browser. Login with your username and password. The default username is admin and the password is blank.
Step 2a If the port you need to forward is a common port, it will be under the predefined virtual server list at the bottom of the page. Click the pad and paper icon next to the virtual server entry you want to use. The Protocol Type and Service Port fields are preconfigured. Click the Enable radio button to use the virtual server. Enter the private IP address of the computer that will use the service port. Configure the Schedule as needed, then Apply your settings.
Step 2b If the port you need to forward is not listed under the predefined virtual server list at the bottom of the page, you can create a new entry for your application. Click the Enable radio button to use the virtual server. Give your virtual server a name. Next, enter the private IP address of the computer that will use the service port. Then, select the Protocol Type and enter the Service Port. If you don?t know how to use Private and Public port assignment, then just enter the same port number in both fields. Configure the Schedule as needed and Apply your settings.
